AdvanceTrac® with RSC®
AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™™) uses gyroscopic sensors to measure both vehicle roll and turning rates. Corner too quickly or swerve to avoid an object and RSC® applies brake pressure and reduces engine power to help keep your vehicle under control. And it all happens in the time it takes to blink an eye. Available trailer sway control works with RSC® to determine if the trailer is swaying. If necessary, trailer sway control applies precise braking or adjusted engine torque to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control. Trailer sway control is included in the Class III Trailer Tow Package for SEL and Limited.
